Policies are used to validate and enforce rules for a system. Kubernetes provides a powerful configuration management system with some built-in policy objects. However, Kubernetes is also designed to be extensible and allows plug-ins to provide powerful capabilities. In this session, Jim will present and demonstrate Kyverno, a CNCF sandbox project, which acts as a policy management plug-in for Kubernetes and enables separation of concerns for Kubernetes operators and developers. You will learn why policies matter via real world examples covering use cases for security and automation of Kubernetes cluster and workload configurations. After covering the basics of Kubernetes policy management and Kyverno, Jim will discuss how to enable policy-as-code so Kyverno policies can be managed across multiple clusters using software management principles and best practices for versioning, change management, and deployment.
